'Bunheads' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Ah, Bunheads, we hardly knew you.

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s follow-up to Gilmore Girls, unfortunately, ended too soon. But luckily, the ladies have moved on to bigger and better. So, where exactly are these dancing queens now?

Sutton Foster

The amazing Sutton (aka Michelle) is currently starring in TV Land’s breakout show Younger alongside Hilary Duff. Sutton plays a 40-year-old attempting to get back into the workforce after a long absence. After facing ageism in the hiring process, she decides to pass herself off as 26 years old. Ridiculousness ensues.

The show has already been renewed for a sixth season and has a pretty loyal following.

Sutton also made a cameo in the Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix.

Kaitlyn Jenkins

Kaitlyn (aka Boo) went back to pursue her dance career and is currently teaching ballet to young children. She also won the 2015 Choreographer of the Year at the KAR Nations Dance Competition.

Julia Goldani Telles

Julia’s (aka Sasha) acting career wobbled for a bit post-Bunheads but she managed to land on her feet when given a small role on Nurse Jackie and then a leading role as Whitney on Showtime’s The Affair.

She’s also recently starred in the film Slenderman and has three more films on the horizon.

Bailey De Young

Bunheads served to skyrocket Bailey’s (aka Ginny) acting career. Since the show ended, she’s gotten pretty consistent work as a guest star on The Middle and Baby Daddy. She then starred as Lauren on Faking It (which also ended too soon) and made a cameo Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. 

She’s currently starring in Amy Sherman-Palladino‘s latest project for Amazon, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisle as Imogen Cleary. Oh, and she recently had the most adorable baby.

Emma Dumont

Emily (aka Melanie) also got a boost from Bunheads and went on to star in Aquarius, T@gged, and The Gifted on Fox. (Yes, she’s officially part of the Marvel universe!).

Kelly Bishop

Kelly (aka Fanny) recently reunited with Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

Ah, we miss Bunheads so much but we’re so glad to see the girls were able to move on to successful careers.

However, if the ladies felt like coming together for one last dance, we wouldn’t be mad.
